Curated by the non-profit organization, CherryArts, the streets of Cherry Creek North were swarmed by art-enthusiasts for an afternoon in the summer sun accompanied by awe-worthy art on display. From sculptures to photography, paintings to clothing, wood whittling to jewelry welding, the display this year was one of the most talented the fest has ever seen.
Not only could fest-goers purchase the art from the featured 265 local and global artists, but also got to create their own art at CCAF’s Artivity Avenue. The immersive art experience offered painting and crafts for the family as part of the initiative to inspire future creatives and their art education.
Missed this year’s event? Fear not, CCAF is soon to host another memorable bash at the Stanley Arts Festival this fall.
